Pace High School inducts 55 new NHS members
Monsignor Edward Pace (PACE) celebrated some of its brightest students as the school’s annual National Honor Society (NHS) Induction Ceremony took place on December 4.
The traditional induction ceremony and dinner took place in the school’s Spartan Center where students were joined by family members, Pace administration, faculty and staff. A thorough selection process took place to identify current students in grades 10-12 with a 3.5 grade point average or higher, who have proven to be well-rounded students and members of their community.
Eligible inductees were then invited by a committee of teachers and staff, all considered candidates must have exhibited excellence across 4 key pillars: academics, leadership, service and character. The selection process included student submitted applications and written essays describing their personal accomplishments as PACE students and how they represent the qualities of the NHS.
Among those inducted were 20 sophomores, 14 juniors and 21 seniors. The dinner event presentations included speeches from PACE principal Ana Garcia, NHS adviser Luis Mayo as well as members of the school’s Student Government Executive Board and NHS alumni – all congratulating the students and their parents on their journey to this proud moment.
Isabella Cardoso, a Pace High School sophomore stated “being a part of this prestigious organization will, from now on, serve as a constant reminder of my responsibility.” She continued “I have to be an example of scholarship, service, leadership and character to my peers and all those I meet.”
During the ceremony, the 55 new inductees were asked to stand and recite the NHS induction pledge. Each student was then presented with their certificate and individual lighted candles, a traditional symbol of the organization’s distinguished honor. All students ended the evening with a lovely dinner alongside their family members and posed for photos with their new NHS peers.
The NHS is a prestigious organization dedicated to honoring well-rounded students and its current members work hard and dedicate a great deal of time to help their school and community. NHS members are among the brightest and most successful students PACE has to offer.
